After the ceremony Sylvia said:

"I would like to say how honoured I am to receive a doctorate from the University of Bolton. It is just unbelievable what we have achieved, and the work we have done in education. It is fantastic to see the change we are making. I would never ever have thought we could change things in the way we have.

I would like to say to the graduates today that you are the people who can change things."You can take your views, your morals, your values, into whichever profession you go into, you can make a difference."
